Happy Mother’s Day ladies!

The Progress-Index Weekend - - OPINION - Wayne Robert Scott Peters­burg

Almighty God blesses our homes when we re­spect our Moth­ers with kind words, at­ti­tude, and ac­tions. Love her un­con­di­tion­ally. For­give her com­pas­sion­ately. Re­mem­ber her grate­fully. Treat her kindly. Make it a habit to pray for her daily and con­tact her reg­u­larly. No Mother is per­fect, but that doesn't change the fact that yours is a gift from Almighty God.

Give your Mother honor, and if you are a Mother, be wor­thy of your fam­ily's es­teem. Ex­pect obe­di­ence from your off­spring - as well as re­spect, whether they are tod­dlers, high school­ers, col­lege or uni­ver­sity stu­dents, or re­tirees. Almighty God has given you charge over your chil­dren this Mother’s Day.

Sis­ters, you may feel dis­tressed, dis­il­lu­sioned or aban­doned by so­ci­ety, friends, and fam­ily this Mother’s Day, but Almighty God will not aban­don you. Even if peo­ple for­sake you, Almighty God will never for­sake His own. Almighty God never for­gets us.

Mother's Day is third only to Christ­mas and Easter in terms of church at­ten­dance in Amer­ica. Chris­tian tra­di­tion has all the rea­sons needed to sup­port and honor Mother's ev­ery day of the year. Chil­dren are to bless their Mother, and hus­bands are to praise her not just on the sec­ond Sun­day of May but through­out the year. Pray to­day, with thanks­giv­ing, for Almighty God's bless­ings on those with the high call­ing of Moth­er­hood.

On Mother's Day let's be on the look­out for those need­ing love. Our streets, stores, and even churches will be filled with lonely peo­ple. No one can be told too of­ten that they are loved. Wives, daugh­ters, and sis­ters all need to hear us say - "I love you" on Mother's Day. Mother's you have seeds of great­ness.

If you are a Mother, you have tremen­dous in­flu­ence in the lives of your chil­dren. There is no way to know how Almighty God will use them in the fu­ture, but what­ever Almighty God plans may be, they will be.

Broth­ers and Sis­ters, is it pos­si­ble that when we get to "Heaven" there will be a Moth­ers Honor Roll, list­ing the names of all the faith­ful moth­ers (Sarah Jane Robert­son Scott) who prayed day and night on be­half of their chil­dren, grand­chil­dren, and great­grand­chil­dren. Maybe, but this much we do know: Almighty God hon­ors Moth­ers who honor Almighty God! But one thing is sure, when Moth­ers pray, Almighty God lis­tens and lives are changed. So never stop pray­ing for your kids, Moth­ers.

If we were asked to name the great­est and most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple, we had prob­a­bly think of pres­i­dents or lead­ers of in­dus­try, busi­ness, bank­ing, me­dia, or ed­u­ca­tion be­cause their de­ci­sions shape the world. But who shaped them? Per­haps one of the most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in any­one's life is a Mother. Be bless, be safe and be happy. Happy Mother’s Day.
